Hello Everyone;

Please check your freindship request and either accept them or reject them. But please don't let them sit idle. If one hundred people do that, if keeps others from making new friends. Just go to your friends tabs, the little silloettes at the top right of your page, under your name and click it. I expect if you haven't found it by now... you may have many pending new friends.

Just a tip.

Who to ask to be storytellers:We're starting out local with our storytellers in our second festival in order to get folks that live in this town involved,but as we get experienced would like to get more variety in stories. We feel we have to get the recognition of those who cherish their traditions to value storytelling as a way to preserve it.

Brian: I find a lot of information by simply reading the paper, especially the arts sections' calendars and brief descriptions of events. When I see an interesting source, I often contact them to see if they'd be interested in joining us.

I just negotiated a long term lease on a historic theatre, Peoria's G.A.R. Hall, a Civil War Veteran's hall. It seats about 200 people, has a banquet facility downstairs, lots of solid oak, stained glass, and a great ambiance. It is a home for my theatre company, We are taping a pilot for a bible based radio storytelling show. And I am interested in hosting a monthly storytelling concert series. Hence my interest in this group.

I have also helped to host/organize a few storytelling festivals and through my theatre company hired many tellers over the years.

Here's a question for any/all of you: We know there is a lot of talent beyond the A list of popular tellers who seem to be the only names on the roster of most festivals. And we know most of the public does not know these folks. What are the most important things you consider when putting together your roster?

Telling Earth Tales, Fox

I'm also a teller-presenter. I work for the largest library system in West Virginia (okay, it's not very big compared to other states!) and I plan the storytelling track for the annual WV Book Festival, recommend storytellers and other presenters for library system events, occasionally suggest presenters for the state library conferences. In my home county I advise the local library director on performers and programming ideas and I work with the local arts group to plan programs for our county--also work with our state storytelling guild, writers groups and poetry groups on program planning. I also plan programs on my own--for example another storyteller and i are into our second year of a small storytelling festival along the Ohio River, and I am planning a ghost stories program at a local theatre for this fall. All small potatoes, but I think that small events in local venues brings storytelling to new audiences and makes it part of the local fabric of life--so that when someone is planning an event, they will start thinking, "hey, what about a storyteller?"

I am thinking about starting a Storytelling Presence in our local Art World... here in Kentucky... so I am all eyes and ears on this one.

Thanks Sean for starting this group. Perhaps there can be a reasonable meeting of the minds for promoters and tellers. Hurray for you and this, another, great idea!

No, not an odd duck. I am primarily a storyteller for the last several decades, but I also produce major events. I'll send you the kit. Welcome to the Ning group.

I may be an odd duck in this regard, but I'm not only a storyteller, but a presenter. I hire other storytellers to perform here. Heck, everyone's sick of me!
